Home Fire Safety/Prevention Tips

Did you know that every year, home fires cause around 13,000 injuries, 2,500 deaths, and nearly $7 billion in damage? Here’s an even more startling fact – most homeowners don’t have a home fire safety and prevention plan in effect. It is of the utmost importance that people take one of nature’s most formidable forces seriously and attempt to mitigate the destruction that can be caused by it. At Conejo Restoration, in addition to mold inspection and mold removal and water and storm damage restoration, we also handle fire damage restoration. We know what happens in the aftermath of fire. To ensure that you and your family remain safe, we offer you the following fire safety and prevention tips.

  • Never leave your home while you’re cooking: According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), most kitchen fires start after people leave their homes for a short time while they are cooking.
  • Get a fire extinguisher: Fire extinguishers save lives. This is why every home should have one. Moreover, make sure that you read the extinguisher’s instruction and that every member of the family knows how to use it.
  • Buy a smoke alarm: Don’t just buy a smoke detector. Remember to test them every month and to change the batteries in them yearly or semi-yearly.fire safety
  • Conduct a fire drill a couple of times each year: Have a clear plan for the unthinkable ready and practice it several times throughout the year. Finally, make sure your family knows which exits to take in the event of a fire.
  • Check your appliances: Make sure that your appliances are in good condition. Be sure that the cords are not frayed or damaged. Also, make sure that you do not use too many plugs per outlet or extension cord.
  • Keep lighters and matches away from small children: According to the National Fire Protection Association, many fires are caused by small children playing with matches and lighters.
  • Have chimneys and vents checked and cleaned once a year: Creosote, a flammable buildup in chimney walls, can cause fires. Make sure you have an inspection to prevent this and other hidden dangers to your chimney and vents. Also, be sure to have your cooling and heating system checked yearly.

Strategies for preventing and surviving fires should not be thought of at the last moment. It takes careful planning to reduce the change of becoming a statistic.
